Create Tarot or Oracle Cards Using Clip Art and Photos

You can create Tarot, Oracle, Affirmation or Greeting Cards, Flyers, Scrapbook pages, Journals, Fine Art or Social Media images or … whatever your heart desires.

Start with any story, tarot, song lyrics, fairy tale, myths, affirmations, dreams, yoga asanas (poses), feelings. You’ll learn how to find and develop stories visually

I share tips, tricks and insights for expanding your creativity using art and color concepts with digital tools for storytelling images that resonate with others.

I’m an artist, published and exhibited photographer and longtime real world teacher. I dyed yarns and wove with my own loom, just like sorceress Morgan Le Fay in this Frederick Sandys painting. I photographed a small section of one of my many weavings.

I walk you through finding and legally getting a wide variety of images and styles for free or low cost. Then how to use many varied images.

I grew and learned so much! Felt so good!

I want YOU to feel that joyous excitement. The thrill of creating something out of nothing. With my expert, patient, humorous guidance.

I have no desire to teach Tarot nor read Tarot for others nor create decks to sell. I am saying this because people keep assuming that is my offer.

No, this is a class showing how YOU can use Tarot or any content to develop visual stories, learn art and use digital tech for your pleasure and/or profit.

I’m all about empowering YOU to discover and expand YOUR creativity and digital skills cos that process can be so life-transforming in great, unexpected ways. So needed in these stressful times. Although creating art is always healing and enjoyable, even in the best of times.

Researching,* designing and creating nearly three dozen cards was/is an amazing experience! I create digital (and traditional) art ALL the time. But nothing like this.

I want YOU to know this feeling: being so engrossed the world falls away.

Learning and creating can help you forget about real world issues, worries and woes.

*I researched because I’m not a Tarot pro in the traditional sense. I don’t read nor teach.

I’m also not a huge fan of Rider-Waite-Smith. I much prefer decks like Wheel of Change and Chrysalis.

These decks integrate mythology, multicultural symbols, Jungian theory, with major focus on transformation. I was drawn to these decks due to their art. These are just a few of the many decks I own which inspire me visually and with their information. I learn so much from their books and so much more info online.

Plus I created Yoga cards. Cards with quotes. I wanted to tell my story effectively. The more I learned, the more fulfilling my journey.

You don’t have to worry about “getting it right.”

No grades. No judgment.

Follow your heart. If you love learning and creating, this is a very unique workshop course. I can’t wait to make more cards. I’ve a long list of ideas. 

When you tap into your creativity and endless sources of inspiration, creating these storytelling cards becomes an enjoyable adventure you want to continue.

Example images in correct Tarot order. Except my three infamous early punk photos at the end. Their stories work best together. These musicians were vital to the earliest LA Punk scene and elsewhere. All changed our culture. All gone from this earthly presence. You can find inspiration from a variety of sources.

Discover the fun and joy of visual storytelling through images and symbols which are meaningful to you. Art is about expressing your thoughts, feelings, dreams, desires and experiences.

Tarot is about life’s adventures and journeys. We all start out the innocent, naive baby or “babe in the woods.” We go “into the woods” to experience our life’s adventures.

Delving into Tarot (or other stories) —  characters, symbols, colors and interpretations — can lead us to better understanding ourselves and our world.

Creating Tarot and Oracle cards can be meditative, healing and empowering. Fun too!

“Jenny has a great knack to make you look around and capture the mood either through manipulating manual settings or making the best of what you have at hand. I would recommend checking out these courses to anyone who wants to dream big and get inspired. I would rate my course 10/10 for inspiration alone. Thank you Jenny!”

I actually sprayed that last flower with a spray bottle to get more interesting image like you did in one of the lessons in Photography for Branded Storytelling Images.Mark Heck, massage therapist

Adorama, THE most prestigious photo gear supplier and photo lab for decades, said I am one of the ten most influential rock photographers of all time.

Wow, don’t YOU WANT to get insider secrets from someone who gets THAT kind of press and recognition?

Jenny Lens was not just one of the few photographers chronicling the early punk scene in both North America and London, she was also one of the few women working in a very male-dominated field. Her life is pretty fascinating and made up of the three acts usually associated with characters in movies and novels.”

Patti Smith called me “the girl with the camera eye.Shouted from LA’s Roxy stage, pointing to me, Nov 15, 1976. 

Patti told me “She still dares other photographers to take better photos than I.” The Roxy, August 2002. 

Iggy Pop told me my photos were as good as his photographer. He asked me where I’d been. I said, “Earning art degrees.” He smiled and nodded. I learned from artists. Now you can learn from me!  Start now and join the fun @ Take Photos. Get Famous.” Get ready for when live shows resume.

“Jenny’s online photo class has been a fun and easy way to introduce myself further into the world of photography and get some amazing insights from one of the real talents. I would rate my course 10/10 for inspiration alone.” ~ Mark Heck

Please investigate Punk Pioneers by photographer Jenny Lens, who captured the scene so perfectly.” Henry Rollins, LA Weekly

“The infamous Jenny Lens, supreme master of the punk rock photo.” ~ San Francisco Bay Guardian [And straight up rock too!]

“The was a time when Punk Rock was dangerous, man — in a cerebral way. And Jenny Lens was there to record it all.” ~ Garage Magazin
